I hope that you are continuing to improve and that your good days out number your bad days! I had a miraculous day recently. I went dancing for 2 hours. While I was dancing, the pain in my back, neck and legs would increase, so I would sit in my Lafooma chair for ten or fifteen minutes to rest my muscles, then get back up and dance some more. I really thought I would be in excruciating pain the next day because for past 12 years I haven’t been able to do any physical activity without it increasing my fibromyalgia pain or chronic fatigue exhaustion. It was all I could do just to keep myself fed and bathed, much less take a walk or dance. Much to my shock, when I woke up the next day I didn’t have any extra pain, no fibro-flare — in fact, I felt better than usual !!! I talked to my doctor about what I was experiencing and he was pleasantly surprised also. I asked him what had caused this because I want to make sure I keep doing it. He said he thinks it’s a combination of the water structure machine that he recommended I buy and the Synchronicity machine that he’s trying out in his Lexington, VA office which I’ve used once so far. I’m not “healed” yet, I have managed to over use my right arm doing some hand sewing and it’s hurting pretty bad, so I’m riding an hour from my home ( I still can’t drive that far yet ) tomorrow and next week to use the Synchronicity machine at least 2 more times in hopes of more improvement. My doctor’s not sure if he’s going to invest in the $19,000 Synchronicity machine, so I’m trying to use it as much as I can in case he doesn’t buy it. The water structure machine runs anywhere from $249 for a portable unit to $1000 for a whole house unit (which is what I bought). They also have a commercial unit for pools and hot tubs but I don’t remember the price ~~ fibro-fog LOL.
Anyway, if you’ve watched my welcome video at the right side of my blog, you’ve heard me state that being sick is expensive. So is getting well but it’s a lot more fun and seems like a much better investment to me! If you would like more information on either of these machines, feel free to contact me at (540) 366-6134.
As always, if you feel that this information would be useful to someone else, please feel free to share my blog on facebook, twitter or any other place that you believe it may be helpful.
Here’s to Feeling Better!
